I've been to both and I'd have to say I like Best Buy better.

I say best buy, their store has interesting stuff to look at, non-annoying staff, and GREAT DEALS. I got two cd's and they were each at least $5 cheaper than future shop. I also got a PCI usb card for my beige for $19.90

I also got a 2litre bottle of coke for free :-P
I signed up for a credit card, I got a $3000 credit limit. I'm kind of glad they dont sell macs, or else I might have had a g5 on my desk

Same thing, different colours.

But if I had to choose, I like future shop, I can never find anything in best buys music section, it's so unorganized. As well future shop has a web site, best buy has been in canada for how long and they still don't have one. [img]tongue.gif[/img]

I find they are totally different, Future shop has either no employees in the store (except for cashiers) OR about 150 people that barely speak english trying to sell me something I wasnt even looking at. The staff at best buy are much better. They just said Hi and walked by me.

You all know it's the same company...

Price one lower. price one higher... it's a sucker bet everytime...

U.S corp buys Can. corp.: keeps both names/ stores = marketing genius!

A standard line I always here from Future Shop reps is :

" No we don't carry that brand here, but Best Buy does."

I hate how our local futureshop has a huge sign out front proclaiming "proudly Canadian".

BS.

They're about as Canadian these days as walmart.

Get your music from a music store, not a box store.

I applied for the loan so i can start to shop at a music store

I'm not paying $19.99 for a cd that costs $9.99 at best buy.

Now, dont get me wrong, I buy LP's all the time at music stores. But CD prices are just retarded.
